    All of these and Get Yer Ya Yas Out are pretty much my favorites. Re: Live at Leeds. I like the 1st reissue with all the extra songs, but no Tommy stuff.

    ABB - Live at The Fillmore. Dickey Betts contrasted it to other 'live' albums where 'the only thing live was the audience'.

    Another vote for Warren Zevon- Stand in the Fire.. punchy sounding record.

    If you are a Kinks fan, this is a must! Two record set that is great top to bottom. Highly recommended.

    Nobody voting for Dylan and the Dead then? Pfft, philistines.

    Gary Clark Jr Live
    Albert King - Blues Power
    Albert Collins - Funky Man, Sudden Frost
    Bob Marley I could go either Babylon or Live
    VU Live at The Matrix
    Dylan 66
    Wilco - Kicking Television
    Fleetwood Mac - Boston Blues

    I'm pretty sure this isn't a live album, sadly, because it sounds like a great night out. I was bummed to discover it was recorded in the studio with friends brought along to create (recreate?) the atmosphere. It sounds more live than a lot of live albums.

    Then there is Charlie Parker, a double album of air checks from the late 40s. The recordings were made on a home tape recorder (surely not wire? hmm, maybe) capturing radio broadcasts from different clubs, such as the Roost. I wouldn't have known about him when I bought the album in the early 70s, but I now suspect that the person who recorded these must have been this person who followed Bird around the country with his tape recorder. I had never heard Parker before, but knew of his reputation. The bandwidth of these recordings was probably between 250 and 1,000 hz. This cutoff off the bass, the thud of the bass drum, cymbals, and I don't remember about the piano. The result was that the syncopations in Parker's angularity and Max Roach's cardboard box bass drum and shoebox snare, create an extremely punctuated, stabbed, jabbed, morse code that just sizzled. When I first got it, I played it through my Benson amp while a plumber was fixing something on a late night call. It was a life-changing moment for me, but I wondered even then what the plumber thought. I remember going, "yeah! hey, man. Isn't that great?" and his very muted responses, such "mmm," "uh-huh," "mmm."

    I love the Wheels of Fire version of Crossroads. Clapton tells a story, with no fluff or padding. Very, very direct and focused. (I could say the same for Stormy Monday, live with the Bluesbreakers). However, I am very potentially bummed by reading that the Wheels of Fire version is a composite of two different solos on different nights.

    Miles Davis - Live Evil

    There's a stretch in Funky Tonk where Keith Jarrett breaks a reed in his Rhodes. It make a dead sound about 1/4 tone off pitch. You hear him discover it, come back to it confirming what's happening, work it into a solo for about 45 seconds, then doesn't hit that key again the rest of the song. :)
